The Wrap reports that Harvey Weinstein promised that an upcoming film starring Meryl Streep that will make the National Rifle Association “wish they weren’t alive” during an interview with Howard Stern earlier this week, and now it has a title. A Weinstein Co. spokeswoman told TheWrap on Thursday that the film will be called “The Senator’s Wife.” “I don’t think we need guns in this country,” Weinstein told Stern on Wednesday. “I think the NRA is a disaster area.” “I shouldn’t say this, but I’ll tell it to you, Howard,” Weinstein added. “I’m going to make a movie with Meryl Streep, and we’re going to take this head-on. And they’re going to wish they weren’t alive after I’m done with them.” Weinstein described the film as a “big movie like a ‘Mr. Smith Goes to Washington,’” which he hopes will make audiences think: “Gun stocks — I don’t want to be involved in that stuff. It’s going to be like crash and burn.” Thanks to everybody for the heads-up.
